A Ballad to the Wedding Industry ~ Poetic Injustice

The Pandemic has been a difficult time for the Wedding Industry, with an increasing sense of societal unfairness so today I wrote a poem describing the  discrimination the sector and couples have, and continue face to against the blatant hypocrisy of our Leaders. I am no Pam Ayres but its an outlet to let out all the upset, and crippling disappointment we all feel.   A Ballad to the Wedding Industry ~ Poetic Injustice   Planning a Big Day should be a time of joy and gladness, But couples have been plunged into a time of uncertainty and sadness, Precious moments of togetherness, and of celebration, Have been replaced with...

A quote I hear a lot in the Wedding Industry from Brides/couples is this elusive “reasonable price” but how do people come up with this magic number. This will be very personal and come down to...
